Spring: The Wind's Story
This CD completes my cycle around the seasons. I had thought my spring effort might be more hopeful but I found myself telling the story of a spring that comes with some wrath: stronger winds, fiercer rains, and which promises nothing Despite that, the prayer of St. Clare captured my attention: Live without fear. May it be so.
Deep December DreamsThis CD draws its strength from the notion that from the depths and darkness of winter the earth has already turned its gaze to summer. Here are some stories, myths, confessions, and dreams to make those long nights pass more quickly. Joining me musically are my CityFolk buddies: Lise Uyanik, Charlie Ebel, Lew Wardell, and Jay Miller. Bob Mutter plays percussion and also did the graphics and snowflake art. Mike Craver, one of the original Red Clay Ramblers, plays piano on four of the cuts, including a stunning accompaniment on Jupiter & Venus. buy this CD at CD Baby
This second CD of mine released in July 2005 has 15 songs: 13 originals and two traditional gospels. There is also a bonus track buried at the end. The themes of home and family, dreams and memories, and hopes and doubts run through the recording. To underscore the theme of family I am joined in voice by my daughters, sister, and nieces on three of the cuts (Never Grow Old, Hallelujah, and My Shepherd). Truly a treasure.buy this CD at CD Baby
My debut CD includes 14 songs: 12 originals and 2 traditionals. Silver is featured on four of the songs. I was able to record this because I received an Artist Fellowship from the State of North Carolina's Arts Council for my songwriting. Bob Mutter did the art lay-out and graphics in addtion to percussion. It has a strong folk feel to it. I think my favorite songs on it are North Star and Horse & Rider.buy this CD at CD Baby
This gospel CD "Hallelujah! Amen." has 15 hymns & spirituals all written between 1790 and 1944; it's a wonderful collection. Great singing by friend Lise Uyanik, and my girls: daughters, sister, and nieces (what a treat!). Guitar virtuoso Will McFarlane; my beat, Bob Mutter; and the piano man, Dave Stuntz all add their artistic touches. Songs include: Come Thou Fount, Amazing Grace, To God be the Glory, When the Saints Come Marching In, Come Ye Sinners, Revive Us Again.buy this CD at CD Baby
